AdvancED Parent Survey

Glenwood is proudly accredited by AdvancED, formerly known as Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The AdvancED Improvement Network is a community of over 36,000 schools and school systems around the globe. While members may have unique needs and visions for their institutions, all are dedicated to their students, parents and communities, and all are focused on learner advancement while using continuous improvement as the guiding force. As part of the accreditation process, a certified AdvancED team visits the school every five years. Glenwood is up for reaccreditation this year and will host the AdvancED team in February. As part of the reaccreditation process, we are working diligently on gathering data from our stakeholders to help determine our strengths, weaknesses, and vision for the future. We are asking that each family complete the following survey no later than September 1st. We thank you for your contribution to this process and look forward to receiving your responses. 

Sincerely, 

Glenwood Administration
